Can colors be applied by category?

Postby mwb1100 » Mon Aug 24, 2009 12:21 am

In our current calendar 'scheme' (in Outlook) appointments and events are automatically colored according to the category set for the event/appointment. Is there a way to do the same in VueMinder?

Thank you for the suggestion. This is not currently a feature, but something we're planning on adding to a future release.

I'd just like to add my vote for customized color schemes per category! That is the one major feature I miss from Outlook.

This will be the next major improvement we add. We're currently finishing up the next release (5.2), which contains many requested improvements to tasks, such as task reminders. After that release is completed (probably within a couple days), we'll begin working on adding the ability to define and use category appearances for events.

Version 5.5.0 has been released and contains the ability to view event colors based on category. To use this feature, switch to the "Categories" tab of the Calendar Items area. All categories default to gray, but you can double-click a category (or use the Appearance Toolbar) to change its appearance.

You'll notice when switching to the Categories tab, all the event colors change to match the category colors. To switch back to viewing events by calendar, simply click the Calendars tab. You can also view event colors based on priority and location. And, if you don't want to tie the event colors to the active tab in the Calendar Items area, you can adjust the display type by using the new "Display Type" options under the View menu. Keyboard shortcuts are also provided for quickly switching between display types.

Alt+1 = Use the active tab in the Calendar Items area
Alt+2 = Color events based on assigned calendar
Alt+3 = Color events/tasks based on category
Alt+4 = Color events/tasks based on priority
Alt+5 = Color events based on location
